Lilac CMYK is (10, 20, 0, 0), which means there is 10 of cyan, 20 of magenta, and 0 of both yellow and black. This translates to an approximate hex code #DFCCE4 and RGB values of (223, 204, 228). The CMYK system is the foundation of color printing technology that runs both large industrial and small desktop printers. Colors are created using only four inks - cyan (C), magenta (M), yellow (Y) and black (K). Please understand that lilac CMYK as it looks on the screen may not be reproduced exactly on printed paper not only because of the two different color models - hex and CMYK - but also because of the quality of the printer, the paper and the four inks.
NOTE: The lilac (CMYK) hex color code mentioned on this page is just an approximation. It has been calculated from the CMYK values. As you probably know, the CMYK color model is for print media while hex codes and the equivalent RGB values are for screen. The two can seldom be converted correctly. Additionally, lilac color displayed on the screen through its hex code, may look very different when printed (by the CMYK values).
The complement of Lilac CMYK is Tea Green with the hex code #D1E4CC. Complementary colors are those found at the opposite ends of the color wheel. Thus, as per the RGB system, the best contrast to #DFCCE4 color is offered by #D1E4CC. The complementary color palette is easiest to use and work with. Studies have shown that contrasting color palette is the best way to grab a viewer's attention.
The analogous colors of Lilac CMYK (#DFCCE4) are Queen Pink (#E4CCDD) and Languid Lavender (#D3CCE4). In the RGB color wheel, these two analogous colors occur to the right and left of Lilac CMYK with a 30° separation on either side. An analogous color palette is extremely soothing to the eyes and works wonders if your main color is soft or pastel.
As per the RGB color wheel, the split-complementary colors of Lilac CMYK (#DFCCE4) are #DDE4CC (Dirty White) and #CCE4D3 (Light Silver). A split-complementary color palette consists of the main color along with those on either side (30°) of the complementary color. Based on our research, usage of split-complementary palettes is on the rise online, especially in graphics and web sites designs. It may be because it is not as contrasting as the complementary color palette and, hence, results in a combination which is pleasant to the eyes.
Lilac CMYK triadic color palette has three colors each of which is separated by 120° in the RGB wheel. Thus, #E4DFCC (Bone) and #CCE4DF (Columbia Blue) along with #DFCCE4 create a stunning and beautiful triadic palette with the maximum variation in hue and, therefore, offering the best possible contrast when taken together.
The tetradic palette of Lilac CMYK has four colors - #E4DFCC (Bone), #D1E4CC (Tea Green) and #CCD1E4 (Light Periwinkle) in addition to the base color (#DFCCE4). A tetradic color palette is complex and, in most cases, should not be used off-the-shelf. We suggest tweaking the colors slightly to achieve desired results.
Lilac CMYK square color palette has #E4D3CC (Bone), #D1E4CC (Tea Green) and #CCDDE4 (Columbia Blue). Quite like triadic, the hues in a square palette are at the maximum distance from each other, which is 90°. Note: For several colors purposes, a square palette may look much better than the tetrad color palette.
Lilac CMYK Color Rainbow Palette
Our Lilac CMYK rainbow color palette is based on the RGB model and consists of 7 colors, just like the traditional rainbow. You might not see a lot of variation in color, especially if the chosen color is dark or extremely light. However, this can lead interesting rainbow palettes that are faded, soft, pastel or dull.
